Mel Reid Looks for Two in a Row

After grabbing her first LPGA Tour win last year, Mel Reid is back to defend at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Defending champ Mel Reid

The ShopRite is a familiar event for the ladies, having been played since 2010 (and from 1986 to 2006 as well) near Atlantic City in New Jersey. The course is part of a resort known as Seaview, A Dolce Hotel, and this is another 54-hole competition.

As I said, Mel Reid is the defending champ but a large number of the Top10 in the CME Race to the Globe are in the field. (I think Jin Young Ko at #3 is the highest-ranked of those players.) But a lot of the Solheim Cup players are back in action this week as well, so the field looks pretty stacked.

It's crunch time for the ladies though. After this event there are only four events left before the CME Group Tour Championship... and some of those are limited-field events, so we should see some serious jockeying for position in the rankings this week!

GC's live coverage starts Friday at 1pm ET.

  1. With both ladies tours in Asia playing majors this week I'm overdue for a recap of last week's action.
    Hae Ran Ryu beat Hye Jin Cho on the 2nd playoff hole to win the Elcrue TV Choson Pro Celebrity on the KLPGA.
    Yuna Nishimura won the Miyagi TV Cup Dunlop Ladies Open on the JLPGA.
    The KLPGA is contesting the Hana Financial Group Championship, which is making live English commentary available on SBS Golf's YouTube channel. On the other side of the East Sea the Japan Women's Open conducted by the JGA is this week's major stop on the JLPGA.
    The KPGA isn't contesting a major but it is a noteworthy event nonetheless: the Hyundai Marine and Marine Engineering KJ Choi Invitational.
